Nike+ GPS app for iPhone tracks your run on Google maps

Nike’s latest announcement brings us the Nike+ GPS app, and it wont need any fancy shoes either.

Nike+ GPS uses your iPhone’s internal GPS and accelerometer to record your speed, distance, and calories burned during your run. Then it maps it out on a Google map for you to check up on later. It syncs data with the Nike+ if you like, and has PowerSongs and motivational messages from Nike celebrity athletes to keep your feet moving.

Some Nike+ GPS features include:

  • Records your run’s pace, distance, and run route.
  • View calories burned.
  • View your run route on Google Maps.
  • Set goals and personal challenges within the app.
  • Reach goals and get congratulatory and motivational messages from celebrity athletes.
  • Get voice feedback on how your run is going.
  • Activate your personalized PowerSong for that extra motivational push.
  • Sync data with the Nike+ website, where you can set challenges, goals, and utilize the Nike+ runner’s community.
  • View your history of runs.

Now available on iTunes for $1.99.

    Ive seen many people who have this app and cant sync they get the message
    “1run unable to sync with nike”

    to combat this do the following

    Change your iphone 4 clock to 24 hours instead of 12 hours

    settings>>general>>date & time>>24hour

    then load nike+gps and hey presto you can sync!

      I started with the 5th gen nano with sensor and transmitter. I went through 5 sensors, exchanged, either the receiver or sensor problem. Finally I was upgraded to itouch, cool, but still problem with sensors not being detected. I ran a 10k on 12/11/10 in Miami at Palmetto Bay, 2 brand new sensors in front of niketown tent with store rep, had no answer, he couldn’t believe it. Took my email, to today no reply. I finally was going to go garmin or iron man, but I saw th gps app, with iphone4 you don’t need sensor or transmitter. Which that alone is a blessing, including the fact I didn’t need nike+ shoes, was enough for me to get the phone, but the app doesn’t work, tried 3 times for route, map, always says No route due to weak GPS signal. I guess theres no interest from apple, nike, to resolve. Nike already lost my shoes I purchased asics. The phone seems to be good, but its unbelievable they put out products that don’t really work properly. I forgot, I use the gym equipment with the nike+, software on equipment at shaq fitness is not updated next gen, etc. I think I will eventually go ironman or garmin.
